Abstract:

The arrangement of the records reflects the manner in which they are organized in the Director'' office. The three categories of correspondence are chronological reader files (outgoing) 1982-2002; chronological miscellaneous files (outgoing and incoming) 1983-1998; and alphabetical files (outgoing and incoming) 1982-1997. Alphabetical files are further divided into correspondence with trustees, donors, and special friends, 1982-1998; correspondence with employees, 1982-1991; correspondence with art dealers, 1982-1985; and correspondence with associations, foundations and corporations, 1982-1991.

The correspondence records include memos and letters to MFAH staff, museum trustees, patrons, benefactors, and supporting members, as well as corporations, museum directors, museum curators and dignitaries. The bulk of the records document Marzio's involvement with fundraising, building projects, art selection, and exhibition planning.

The reader files document daily administration of the museum, museum policies, exhibition schedules and budgets, staff appointments, staff planning, and special instruction to staff members. Subjects include information on the progress and the completion of the Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden. The reader files also chronicle donations and gifts to the museum, the establishment of a museum archives and the hiring of an archivist, the death of trustee and philanthropist Alice Pratt Brown, the Garden Club of Houston, and the Ruth K. Shartle Symposium.

Correspondence with associations, foundations, and corporations reflects the involvement of MFAH and Marzio in the Houston community.
